The objective of the research is to capture the interdependency of the communication and transportation systems to better understand the impact of vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication performance on V2X applications.
There is some evidence that driver behavior may be detrimentally impacted by the use of advanced-vehicle technologies; however, more research is needed regarding the possible adverse effects of driving automation systems on driver behavior (e.g., distraction and overreliance upon the system).
Currently, there is no existing single standard when it comes to ADAS and crash avoidance testing procedures, which means each testing program that assesses and rates advanced safety systems may have its own testing and rating process. As such, the goal of this project was to examine differences between ADAS test procedures conducted by test programs across the globe.
In collaboration with the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, VTTI developed and implemented a pilot sentinel surveillance system at two Level I trauma centers: one in Roanoke, VA, and the other in Winston-Salem, NC.
Drivers and construction workers have always communicated with each other through various methods such as hand gestures and eye contact. With the advent of highly automated vehicles (HAVs) on the horizon, the transportation industry is interested in the ability of these vehicles to communicate their intent to other road users.
The objective of this project is to assess the environmental effects of a wide deployment of C-V2X and to evaluate the potential safety effects of C-V2X on various traffic participants.
